Two questions

Does a bond already exist which is taking a negative position on USD/BTC? (given the current upswing, im sure some people might like to hedge or have a negative outlook)

Would there be any interest in a 0 coupon bond, as such, after IPO, all funds sold into USD, then at T-1 maturity, the USD are are used to buy back?

Could be split into tranches, or leveraged by a secondary bond.

Good/Bad idea?

GLBSE had something... not sure what was the name. It probably went belly up Smiley

While not a bond, there is a type of futures market offered through icbit.se, with leverage:

This doesn't offer much of an advantage over simply selling the BTC. Anyway there are also bonds tied to the USD, some of them offering coupons.
